Save the Date for the first-annual Oceans@Duke Blue Economy Summit: Shifting the narrative from extractive to equitable

Hosted at Duke University, the first-annual Blue Economy Summit will bring together diverse ocean stakeholders from industry, government, non-profits, and academia to identify the most promising opportunities to bring this vision to life.

This Blue Economy Summit will be organized around three themes:

  1. Shifting to a Low-Carbon Ocean Future;
  2. Building Resilience in Coastal Regions in a Changing Climate;
  3. Ensuring Sustainable Livelihoods and Blue Justice.

In addition, the Oceans Innovations Showcase will highlight innovative “blue” technology and provide opportunities for students to engage with entrepreneurs working to enhance ocean sustainability.

Whether through a speaking role, sponsorship, or engagement with fellow thought leaders, participants of the Oceans@Duke’s Blue Economy Summit will have the exciting opportunity to join a rapidly growing interdisciplinary ocean research and education network. Through this network, Oceans@Duke aims to shape the coming decades of human activity in the oceans.
